10 Reason You Eat When You’re Not Actually Hungry
To cope. But if you turn to food for emotional reasons, you won’t resolve the underlying issues.
Out of boredom. But eating can only last for so long—and then you have an afternoon to fill!
Because other people are eating. Check in with your hunger level to see if you really need it.
Because food is there. If you’re unable to nix the trigger food altogether, move the treats out of sight—you’ll be less likely to grab a handful.
Because it’s a special occasion. Celebrations are about the people, not the food.
Because you’re tired. A change of scenery might be just the ticket to battle the afternoon lull.
Because the clock says so. Don’t just eat when the clock tells you to! When mealtime hits, use it as a cue to check in with your current hunger level.
Because it’s free (or cheap). Always check in with your body’s hunger level before you automatically fill your plate with a freebie.
Because you can’t say no to food pushers. You can always set the fork down or share the cake with neighbors or co-workers, or simply eat just a small portion.
Because you suffer from clean plate syndrome. To prevent overeating, take stock throughout your meal to gauge how hungry you are; you might find that you don’t need those last few bites after all.

If you have ever struggled with cravings during “that time of the month”, you’re not alone. We all get cravings and sometimes, they feel uncontrollable. Check out this article by Glamour magazine on handling food cravings during your period:“Obviously, everyone’s menstrual cycle is different. Some of us have serious cravings during PMS; others experience them during our actual periods; and others have no cravings at all, ever. And, of course, we crave things that are as different as crackers and cake. Hormones are funny little guys.
But there are a few tricks to smoothing out the process and keep the period cravings in check:
1: According to one study, the chocolate cravings really are a thing. In order to level out your blood sugar—and your cravings for cocoa—eat fiber-rich, whole grain breads and cereals.
2: Eat some high-quality fats with your meals, like natural nut butters and olive oil. They’re heart-healthy, but also very filling—and that will help keep cravings at bay.
3: Research has shown that women dealing with PMS may experience low levels of calcium, which could increase cravings for foods that contain it—like, oh, ice cream. Eat some yogurt, broccoli, or kale to help keep your calcium up.
4: Have some of what you’re craving! Seriously, telling yourself a cookie is “off limits” when you’re crampy and grumpy—well, that’ll certainly make you feel more irritable than you already are. (I speak from experience on this one, but experts back me up!)”
